High Country Hip Camp

9 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · Magdalena, NM
We live on a 5 acre mini ranch right in the Village of Magdalena. Our property looks remote because we are on the edge of the village overlooking the hills and mountains of village land, however we are just a hop skip jump away from the local bar, cafe, gas station, etc. This property is best suited for RVs, car camping, vans, etc. Tent camping is available, but beware of winds. We offer very limited access to amenities, but with some notice we can help with with water hook ups, garbage disposal. We have an extra bathroom in the house available for guests to use for toilet and showers, but require arrangements, as we have dogs and will need to unlock house as needed. Folks are welcome to start a fire at the fire pit and say hello to our animals. We have a donkey named Dolly, a goat named Jake, and mini horse named Amber. We also have 2 horses on site named Cowgirl and Chiquita. Check out our second property on HipCamp, Tumbleweeds Diner!

Kabuki Cowboy’s Ranch

3 sites · Tents30 acres · Magdalena, NM
I grew up living in the Midwest, but I was always spending my summers with Dad’s family in the Southwest. My grandfather was a farmer in Española, and my grandmother was brilliant in the kitchen, with everything he grew. In my adulthood, I found I had lost a lot of those memories. Aside from visiting a few close family members now and again, I began to feel detached from the impact this part of the world left on myself. That’s what prompted me to start looking for land in New Mexico. I found Magdalena and felt catapulted back into my childhood. I still feel like a kid when I’m at the ranch, and I can’t wait to see where things go with this rustic time capsule.Learn more about this land:Meander down the Forest Roads, flanking mule deer and jackrabbits, to this private hilltop 30 acre ranch outside historic Magdalena, complete with near 360 degree Mountain Views of the bear range, mt baldy, Drone mountain, and other peaks. The county does a great job of maintaining the dirt roads coming in, and I regularly make the trip into town with a little 2wd crossover. That is, when I get a hankerin for some delicious food at Tumbleweeds. That usually gets me ready to check out the library and boxcar museum for some free WiFi, where I can make a game plan. There’s so much to do in Magdalena, including antiquing, getting some space at the VLA, catching a local art exhibit, or exploring native plants, rocks, and jewelry. Get an early start and catch the farmers market where the local high school sells produce. There’s definitely something special in this lovely pocket of the Old West. Magdalena was once known as the “End of the Line” for cows being herded the long cross country distances required by Cowboy’s of the time. More recently, historic highway 60 connected the country well before Route 66. In more recent years, the Very Large Array has put this part of the world’s night skies on an international pedestal for star gazing.
